Does your isp require a username and password to connect? your default gateway and dns server are showing the same address.... which is not normal :whistling:

check and see if you can access the router setup page from the wireless.... in your web browsers address bar, type in: 192.168.0.1 :and press enter "without the : :"

Yeh i Had a brainfart, sorry....

Since you have re-setup your router if you do another ipconfig, do you still get:

DNS Server: 192.168.0.1

and can you access web pages?

Here is our problem.... your speeds is that low because your router is not connecting to your isp. It cannot see past itself

Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 - - - this is your routers ip address

DNS Server: 192.168.0.1 - - - - - - this should be your ISP's server ip address but it is showing as your router.

In post # 3 you replied to "What is the manufacturer and model of the wireless router?" as follows:

INTEL_ ......System model is D845GVA2

That is a motherboard type not a wireless router. I need the manufacturer and model of your router so i can see check for a manual setup, since your auto setup isn't working right. Please review this diagram so you can see what a router is:

The left picture in this post.

the manufacturer and model number can usually be found on the back or bottom.
